Lee Johnson and Bristol City continue to impress this season, bouncing back perfectly from last weekend’s defeat in the Sky Bet Championship to Leeds United, recording back-to-back victories in the Carabao Cup and the Championship over the last week.
Saturday’s 2-1 victory at the Stadium of Light over Sunderland helped the Robins move back to fourth in the Championship table, with Johnson’s side now looking for back-to-back victories on the road when they travel to London on Tuesday evening to face Fulham at Craven Cottage.
Here at FLW, we look at the starting XI Johnson might opt to field for Tuesday’s clash, starting with Frank Fielding, who will be expected to continue in goal. Ahead of Fielding we could see a reshuffle, with Nathan Baker struggling with injury he picked up against Sunderland.
We are expecting to see Eros Pisano replace Baker in the back-four, with Bailey Wright moving to central defence to partner Aden Flint and Joe Bryan continuing at left-back. Ahead of those four, we could see an unchanged midfield selected by Johnson, with Jamie Paterson, Marlon Pack, Josh Brownhill and Callum O’Dowda lining up from left to right.
In attack, the impressive Bobby Reid is likely to continue, but alongside £1.13m-rated Milan Djuric, who has two goals in his last two appearances for the Robins, including the winner against Sunderland on Saturday.
